Parts of this archive are also in Cologne, Florence and, it is believed, Barcelona. The archive is in course of publication. For texts from Cologne see G.M. Browne, "Harpocration panegyrista," Illinois Classical Studies 2 (1977) 184-196 (the text is now SB XIV 11929) and P.Coll.Youtie II 71-73; for Duke texts see W.H. Willis. "Two literary papyri in an archive from Panopolis," Illinois Classical Studies 3 (1978) 140-153 (the second text is now CPF I i* 1) and P.Congr.XV 22.
For details see P. van Minnen, "Une nouvelle liste de toponymes du nome Hermopolite" (forthcoming in ZPE).
Published by W.H. Willis, "Comoedia Dukiana," Greek, Roman and Byzantine Studies 32 (1991) 331-353.
Because the online catalogue will contain information about publication it is unnecessary to be more specific here.

Literary papyri fare a little better than documentary papyri in this respect. There are the catalogues of R.A. Pack, Catalogue of the Greek and Latin Literary Texts from Greco-Roman Egypt (2nd ed., Ann Arbor 1965) and J. Van Haelst, Catalogue des papyrus littéraires juifs et chrétiens (Paris 1976).
APIS is a joint undertaking of Columbia University, Duke University, Princeton University, The University of California at Berkeley, the University of Michigan, and Yale University.
 Coming from a non-native cataloguer this remark can hardly be mistaken for Anglo-American imperialism.
Unfortunately, FirstSearch does not display B.C. dates. PRISM does.
Prepared by my colleague Suzanne Corr. The explanations are my responsibility. In addition to the fields spelled out in bold face type there are a number of fixed fields, in which the information about date, language and provenance etc. is given in a coded form. This allows manipulation of OCLC, e.g. by limiting a search to manuscripts in Greek ("grc"). Egypt is entered in one of these fixed fields as "ua."
